3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Billy’s in Austin. Light Amber in color, with light to medium carbonation and small to medium white head. Smell is of caramel sweetness, intense juicy dried apricots, slight maltiness. Taste is similar with a mild bitterness as well. Medium finish and a good beer overall. My favorite Live Oak beer.

Fruity, fruit sour, acetic acid, that blows out, it's real beer all right. Had at BB Rovers north Austin with a lunch of chicken salad and Doggie Style (the beer). It almost spoiled the afternoon. Not much bitterness besides some husky tannins. Sweet.

Tap at Hay Merchant. Clear brown with a decent beige head. Nice floral hop character in this one, it’s like a dark pilsener. Pretty light bodied. Nice vienna.

Decent example of the style. These guys do some good work, but need to broaden their horizons.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Grove in Austin.
Pours dark amber with a decent head; the aroma is caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is a barely sweet, slightly sour+metallic hoppy throughout, providing a rather uninspired amber lager that I’m in no big hurry to revisit.
